Trinity United Methodist Church of Mount Prospect is proud to have a long tradition of generous giving from its members to local and global missions.
Every Friday night from November to April our church opens its doors as one of many shelter locations for the homeless and at risk in the north and northwest suburbs. The employees of Journeys: The Road Home are assisted by a pool of 2,500 volunteers who put in over 75,000 hours a year at the HOPE Center and PADS sites.
What if adults could influence children today to become Generation Grateful?
Jeffrey Froh and Giacomo Bono coined the term, Generation G to describe the goal of shaping the character of children to work together for a better future. They believe that gratitude is “a quality that can be learned and strengthened with practice.” Gratitude leads people to treat others with generosity at home, school, in their congregation, and local community. The authors’ vision of nurturing gratitude extends from families to society to the world.
People of faith recognize God’s abundant gifts and blessings. Our grateful response is responsible stewardship of the gifts and resources entrusted to us. Members & friends of Trinity UMC express gratitude through . . .
